Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have added U.S. stadium dates to their current River tour. The stadium shows will kick off with two nights at East Rutherford, New Jersey's MetLife Stadium, August 23 and 25th. There have been a total of eight shows added to the concert series, all taking place at major stadiums. Springsteen will be playing at Chicago's United Center, Washington D.C.'s Nationals Park, Philadelphia's Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater, and more.
Rolling Stone reports, "When the North American leg of the River tour wrapped in Brooklyn on April 25th, Springsteen told the crowd it was the "last official performance of The River from start to finish." The tour heads to Europe for a long run of stadium and festival dates next week. "We're gonna open up our set lists over in Europe," Springsteen said in Brooklyn. "The band is looking forward to coming off a leash," E Street Band bassist Garry Tallent wrote on Twitter. "This could get interesting.""
In April, Bruce Springsteen canceled his North Carolina show due to the state's anti-LGBTQ law. The show was set to take place April 10th, but the Friday before, Springsteen announced that he would not be playing his concert in Greensboro. A long line of musicians have followed in the Boss' shoes since.
Bruce is also currently working on new music but no information or an estimated time of arrival has been reported as of yet.
